Driving in the UK

Parking is strictly policed in the UK - don’t leave it to chance without paying. Parking usually operates on a pay-per-hour rate, either by machine or via telephone. It’s prohibited to park on double yellow lines, these zones are the most patrolled.

The National Speed Limit is 70 mph (112 km/h) on dual-carriageways, 60 mph (96 km/h) on single carriageways and generally 30 mph (48 km/h) in cities and countryside villages (where there is a high risk of pedestrians crossing the road) and can sometimes lower near schools.

Watch out for motorbikes, especially in the countryside where single-lane roads and large hedgerows can obstruct drivers’ views. The chance of having an accident is also increased due to the small space for vehicles to pass each other.

Europcar Fleet available in the UK

Vacationing in the UK? Business trip? Whatever your reason, Europcar will make your UK car rental hassle-free. From our luxury car selection such as Mercedes SLC or Jaguar XE, family cars with more room like the Skoda Octavia or Audi A4 Estate to smaller models (Corsa, Fiat 500), the Europcar fleet has options to suit all needs.
